Lately, I’ve been thinking…my English classes are way too early. Starting today I start teaching at 7am! What was I thinking?! It’s too late to change for this week, but NEXT week it’s 8am. 2 classes a day, and then evening classes on Friday and Saturday to make up the difference (no classes on Monday since that’s my first day at my new job!).
Lately, I’ve been feeling…anxious about starting my new job! I am meeting the family who I will be “living with” today. Not really “living with”. I am told their main floor is an apartment and that is where I am to be staying. They live on the second floor of the house. “They” being: a mom, her female caregiver (don’t know why she has one but that’s not really any of my business) and her grown son. Hopefully they are nice. I’m sure they are since they are taking me in! I meet them today, move on the 20th and start work on the 21st.
Lately, I’ve been wanting…to sleep in. I hate my alarm! I could get up at 7 am in Korea every day with the sun no problem. But waking up at 6:40 with my alarm here is death. Maybe it’s because my room is so dark in the mornings here…I don’t even want to think about the 6am wake ups all this week. Kill me now!
Lately, I’ve been doing…French practice! Sunday morning was the first morning of doing a “practice lesson” without wanting to throw my computer against the wall! YAY ME! I make sure to do a new skill each day and then at least once through a “practice lesson” which combines all the skills you have learned up to that point.
Lately, I’ve been hoping…for good driving conditions! Having to drive to Toronto today means that I have rented a car. My first time renting a car EVER. But my alumni card from my university gets me a discount with the company I am going with so that’s good! But I want to have good road conditions and not so much traffic.
